You guys, I hate the flu. It sneaked up on me all gross and annoying and it won't go away :( I'm sick of coughing every 2 minutes :(((

Ahh, before I forget again...

HAPPY BELATED BIRTHDAY [ profile] chaoticallyclev!

I am sorry I couldn't draw you a b-day card on time! If you give me a prompt I'll doodle you something quick! :)?

And here are some drive-by bits and pieces!

[ profile] qldfloodauction is still going on! There's still time for you to offer/bid on the main auction (and hey, a delicious account has been set up to make the browsing easier :))

[ profile] bandomvalentine is going to open the secondwave claiming soon! Go and snatch some amazing prompts and then fill my life with joy, okay? <333

[ profile] inception_art is going to host its first fest :D Prompting is open to everyone so keep your eyes peeled for the prompt post and then go crazy with it \o/

In news that interest no one at all, the Christmas gift from my sister finally arrived :D She got me The Tiny Book of Tiny Stories <333 I am besotted with it and the little red button! &mysister;

Also, it's been a while since last time and I friended some people lately so here, let's know each other better with a meme (stolen from [ profile] ohohstarryeyed):

In response to this post, ask me about the first time I did/felt/knew something. It can be anything—the first time I ate Italian food, the first time someone I knew died, the first time I left the country, my first OTP, the first time someone saw me naked in a sexual situation. I’ll answer in the thread. Then (if you like) put it on your journal and I’ll ask you questions.

You've mentioned this to me before but, the first time you knew you wanted to be an artist?

*huuugs* Oh bb, don't worry, I just turn into a crybaby when I'm sick :\

Ah yes, I remember talking about how art has always been part of my life in some way, but the first time I knew I wanted it to be more than just a hobby was at the end of my second year in HS, just before we had to select our major for the next 3 years. There was this sort of end-year showcase and we spent the last month in a flurry of sketches and models and splatters of paint and it was all such a high; I remember thinking I wanted to do that for the rest of my life, so I scrapped the sheet with the Art History major and handed in the one for Architecture :)

I have the tiny book of tiny stories! My sister and I have been cooing over it. It's adorable. I love the one about the kaleidoscope best, I think. ♥

I want to think of a question to ask you, but I don't know which one! Tell me about the first time you ate Italian food! :DDDD /bad joke

No. Tell me about the first time you...really connected with a piece of art/literature. Like, you looked at it and thought YES I FEEL THIS TOO.

[identity profile] 2011-01-17 04:30 pm (UTC)(link)
Isn't it adorable?! I keep picking it up and opening it at random and then make hands and cooing sounds over it <333 My favourite today is the humming bird one, though I have a soft spot for the last one, with the clock hands, because it reminds me of a silly commentfic I wrote once :P

Weeeell... The first time I ate Italian food would have been when I was around 26 days old and my grandpa thought it was about time I had a taste of his wine with homemade polenta. Slept like a log for 4 hours straight ;D

Ah, let me think... there's this scene in Baricco's Novecento where the main character (who is still a kid at this point) takes his place in the world he lives in with a complete disregard for common laws and rules; he just sits at his place and is. The fact that he knew already who he was and didn't want or need an outside, government-based source to make it legit made me breathe more easily all of a sudden. I think I was 15 at the time...

When I was little I would never sleep. One time, my parents tried putting a tiny bit of vodka into my milk. It didn't really work, but today, vodka is hands down my favourite spirit. :D

Ahahah, I see all parents at some point try the alcohol route! Mine never tried vodka, but I'm told warm milk and whiskey was a great success :D ...and, uh, still is *clutches her Baileys bottle*

I'm sorry you're sick, bb. <3 I hope you feel better soon!

What was your first fandom and OTP?

[identity profile] 2011-01-17 04:44 pm (UTC)(link)
Thank you <333

Ohh, my very first fandom was Saiyuki and my OTP was, of course, Sanzo/Goku (though, I never said no to Kougaiji/Goku. Also, I had a soft spot for Lirin). I never actively participated in it, just commented a lot, but it was a nice way to get into fandom :)

Thank you! ha, well, given time zones and things, you were barely even hours off. Totally counts :D :D :D And that is a gorgeous cake pic.

Ack, prompting! um, uh, a chibi Ryan in his mismatched socks? (ha, this feels like my most used icon, even though it probably isn't. the socks part, that is. I think I just confused myself)

Sorry you've been sick :( no fun at all. I finally got over my bizarre mutant illness that lasted way too long. Hope you get better soon!

hmm, what was the first song you heard that really got you into p!atd?

[identity profile] 2011-01-17 07:55 pm (UTC)(link)
Eh, the persistent flu-that-feels-like-the-plague totes made me in with dates and stuff :| But! Doodle coming your way before the week is out *promises*

The first Panic song that made me jump the bandom fence was Lying :) the funny thing is that it was also the first Panic song I've ever heard, but I didn't know who they were back then. I saw the video once, way before I got into bandom, and thought that it was really cool, but then I forgot to check the band out :P

I started actively listening to panic right before the second album came out. And it was one of those moments when I realized that I'd known a band, but had never connected the dots between songs. or just forgot them. Like I found out that I'd been listening to fall out boy for years and had no idea when I logged into my yahoo music account thing and saw that i'd saved and favorited songs of theirs and I hadn't logged into that account for years.

Yeah, I was stumbling around late to all of my classes and accidentally buying the wrong textbooks and clocking out of work too early... I am not good at functioning while sick. i don't know why anyone let's me drive when I'm sick, because I'm pretty sure I kept trying to turn the engine on when the car was already running. which is not good.
